    How can that happen? I would assume the only way would be for the loaded gun to have perhaps been held with the hand over the muzzle and the stock resting on the ground facing skywards? I mean how else can the gun be carried for it to blow the hand off the person holding it??? I almost want to say serves him right, for firstly holding the loaded gun in such a manner (assuming that is what happened) and secondly for having a young dog out that clearly does not know how to behave!

    Oh to be perfect...

    I was out on the foreshore one morning waiting for the geese to flight inland when another wildfowler walked by the gutter I was hiding in. We had a brief chat and I told him that other than us two there was no one else out and I wasn't arsed if wanted to take position next to me. He went another 50yds further down the marsh edge, whilst still pitch black I heard a shot.

    He must have good eyesight I thought, after the flight we had a chat and as it transpired he had his gun lying on the turf in front of him with the safety off, his lab had jumped up onto the trigger and the gun had gone off. Luckily he wasn't hurt but his gun launched off to land in the squelchy mud in the bottom of the gutter.

    Should never happen as you say, but knew a keeper who shot off most of his hand, lent gun against fence[loaded] when he crossed it,

    Picked up gun by muzzle old hammer gun and one of the hammers caught on strand of wire, he managed to walk three miles and flag down a car, huge blood loss but he survived, he was only left with thumb on that hand.

    i worked with a lad afew years ago he was a trainiee game keeper before i met him and lent his gun up against a tree whilst taking a leake, his dog came past wagging its tail and knocked the gun over, back of calf gone and he now walks with a very bad limp and they told him he would be wheel chair bound by his late 30's as it would knacker his hips up with wear and tear.
